Make research easy: Try OneSearch
If you are just beginning your search for articles and books, Legacy’s OneSearch is an excellent place to start. OneSearch searches all of the library’s article databases at once: CINAHL, Cochrane Systematic Reviews, OVID Medline, PsycArticles, as well as others. It also searches hundreds of ebooks in the library’s collection.
OneSearch is a great tool to use when you don’t have a lot of time and want to do the most efficient search you can. You can save your searches and also create search alerts to re-run your saved searches for the latest research on your topic.
Periodically the library offers an introductory webinar on OneSearch, given by one of our medical librarians. By attending one of the webinars, you can learn how to use the features of OneSearch to narrow down your search. Find out more about signing up for a webinar or setting up a one-on-one session with a librarian on the library website.
Click here to register for the next OneSearch webinar, on April 13th at 7:30 a.m.
